Views of the CIes Islands from the sea. The archipelago consists of three islands: Isle of Monte Agudo (or Northern), Lighthouse Island and Island of San Martiño (or South).
Cliffs of Cies Islands. The western slope is the most abrupt coast of the islands where the erosive action of the sea leads to high cliffs and caves
Views of the Cíes Islands. The archipelago of islands Cíes consists of three main islands, North Island or Monte Agudo, the island of Mount Faro, or Central and South Island or San Martiño, and other small islets.
System nautal dune Cíes Islands. The eastern side presents a much softer profile protected from the erosive action of wind and the open sea, allowing the formation of beaches and dune systems.
Views from the 'High Prince'. In the Cies can be observed intriguing geological formations resulting from erosion. If the erosion is a horizontal surface formations are called pools or pious (gnamma) and canals. These formations can be seen in the to
The 'Lake of children' is the complex beach-dune-lagoon which connects both islands. This geomorphological system is intimately linked with the winds and tides and currents is a rich ecosystem of many marine species. The gap is formed between the dun
In the Cies Islands can be observed intriguing geological formations resulting from erosion. Forms as bee nests (alveoli) and Cachola (taffoni) who are rounded cavities originated on vertical surfaces of the rocks as a result of a breakdown or granul
Rocky coastline of the Cíes Islands. The archipelago of islands Cíes was formed millions of years ago between the mid-Tertiary and Quaternary as a result of tectonic movements and the end of the last ice age that gave rise to the estuaries of Galic
The South Island or San Martiño is separated from the coast out Centola (Mount Ferro) by a narrow known as Porta da freuen. This island does not reach the passenger boat.
Campsite Cíes Islands. There is a campsite of 800 seats for which can booked in the Maritime Station. You can get more information, call: +34986225272.
The Cies Islands archipelago was formed millions of years from the mid-Tertiary and Quaternary as a result of tectonic movements and the end of the last Ice Age that gave rise to the Galician.
The islands have an asymmetric profile with two strands of distinct morphological features. The western slope is steeper shore islands where sea erosion results in high cliffs and caves. The eastern side has a much smoother profile protected from the erosive action of wind and open sea, allowing the formation of beaches and dune systems.
Cies Islands have a climate with conditions similar to Mediterranean regions due to low annual rainfall (nearly half of which rains in Vigo). This feature along with the winds with high salt content that negatively affect the development of trees, makes the Cies Islands are a territory that differs markedly from the familiar territory of Galicia Atlantic.
In the Cies can see odd geological formations resulting from erosion. As honeycomb shapes (alveoli) and cacholas (taffoni) which are rounded cavities originating on the vertical surfaces of rocks as a result of a breakdown granular or flake.These forms can be seen in the stone of the bell.
If erosion is on horizontal surfaces formations are called sinks or pious (gnamma) and channels. These formations can be seen in the top of the prince.
Another interesting formation is between the North and Central beaches. The resort beach-dune-lagoon which connects the two islands. This system is closely linked to geomorphological winds and tidal currents and is a rich ecosystem of many marine species. The gap is formed between the dune system and artificial reef dam lake called children.
